What we're about

Adventures in and around the inner North/ North East. Please join, if you are keen to explore new restaurants, cafés, bars, walks, movies, events and would like to meet new people along the way.

Suburbs in which we will likely schedule meetups include: Thornbury, Northcote, Fairfield, Clifton Hill, Fitzroy North and Preston with a focus on the three in the title. Occasionally we may also venture West (e.g. Brunswick, Brunswick West).

P.S.: This is intended to be a very active group - a place people can turn to for cool things to do each week ideally. I am always happy for other Event Organizers to join me (hard to do it all alone) in the quest of building a fun Inner North East community - just send me a personal message.

Kayaking at Fairfield Boathouse

Fairfield Boathouse

Kayaking at the boathouse is back again for the first time this year. It's been a long hiatus.
Join us Saturday morning for an hour of paddling along the Yarra river in Fairfield. We'll meander up the river before returning to the boathouse with an optional coffee depending on how everyone is feeling afterwards.

The cost is $28 for an hour plus a $20 refundable deposit payable to the venue at the time of the event.

We'll meet at the boathouse entrance at 10.
And yes, you will get wet.

Weekend on Wednesdays

Online event

Looking for some company on Wednesdays? Join us! Why? Because who doesn't love a 'weekend feel' on a Wednesday. 🤷‍♀️

Christina (not an instructor, just an artist) will be working on some of her creations and you can come keep her company. Do some of your own art, sit and have a cuppa, or work on some other project. The purpose of this MeetUp is.... just because!

Feel free to drop in any time for however long in between 10am and 12pm. (Even if you need to get away from your boss for five minutes or change the current screen that you are looking at that is driving you mental, drop by and say hi! 😜)

This event is also run in Good Experiences, Great People (Melbourne)

Dinner at The Great Northern Hotel $20 deposit

Great Northern Hotel


We're back at the Great Northern for again for another spring night. Wear your best frock.
Come join us for dinner and a chat in their beer garden in the heart of Carlton North (is there a heart of Carlton North).

We have 2 tables booked in the band room under Eddie and Anthony.

A $20 non refundable deposit is required for this event and will be refunded on the night.
The deposit will be required 48 hours from RSVPing to the event or you will be moved removed from the event.
Please make payment to the following account only if you are on the going list.
Please note the new bank details.
Please let me know once payment is made. PLEASE USE YOUR NAME AND VENUE AS YOUR REFERENCE.

Please only RSVP to an event if you fully intend to show. Pulling out of a dinner or another booked event (with a venue) on the day is a kick in the teeth for both the venue and the organiser. I understand there are instances where this is unavoidable, but you are short changing the venue on the revenue they are reliant upon, especially when it comes to paying their staff. It may be too late to rebook those tables with other patrons. Not to mention the stress this puts the organisers under.
Please be considerate.

Book Club 'Apples never fall' by Liane Moriarty

Youngman Cafe

Book club 'Apples never fall' by Liane Moriarty at Youngman Cafe.

If your mother was missing, would you tell the police? Even if the most obvious suspect was your father?

This is the dilemma facing the four grown Delaney siblings.

One night a stranger named Savannah knocks on Stan and Joy’s door, bleeding after a fight with her boyfriend. The Delaneys are more than happy to give her the small kindness she sorely needs. If only that was all she wanted.
